Park City is sharing the care!
We love our members and we love our community, so Park City has been busy the past few months sharing some positivity by giving back.
Park City’s teams delivered fruit, cookies and Hershey’s bars to the staff at the Merrill Post Office, donated some fuzzy slippers and puzzle books to the residents at Milestone Assisted Living Home and donated enough money to cover the costs of all bedrooms in the MAC Home for one night.
We also covered the costs for one of our members who made more than 200 masks, which were sent to a naval base in Washington where another Park City member is stationed.
Want to see more of what Park City is doing in the community? Make sure you’re following us on Facebook!

Park City donates $20,000 to area non-profits
Four Northwoods food pantries and a waterfront trail are the benefactors of $20,000 in donations made by Park City Credit Union. The Community Food Pantry of Merrill, Lakeland Pantry, Rhinelander Area Food Pantry, Tomahawk United Methodist Church Food Pantry and River Bend Trail in Merrill each received $4,000.
Virtual Youth Month a Success for Park City Credit Union
Every April marks National Credit Union Youth Month where credit unions across the country encourage kids to develop healthy savings habits by making savings fun and exciting. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Park City Credit Union conducted several online initiatives, including a contest aimed at sharing and charitable giving. Children were asked to write about a local organization in their community that is making a difference. Siblings Amara and Leo Lazare both wrote about Food For Kids and the work they are doing to help youth in the Merrill Area.

Park City donates $2,000 to local food pantries
There are longer lines at food pantries across the country as those in need seek help during the pandemic. Whether it is the result of being out of work due to the COVID-19 situation, or scaling up demand due to families that have been affected by school closures, there is greater demand at local pantries in the Northwoods.
That’s why Park City Credit Union donated $500 to four local food pantries: Community Food Pantry of Merrill, Lakeland Pantry, Rhinelander Area Food Pantry and Tomahawk United Methodist Church Food Pantry. It’s one of several ways, including relief loan options, the community credit union is helping people in the region.
Celebrate Youth Month with us!
April is National Credit Union Youth Month, and Park City wants to celebrate with you!
We’ll have different events throughout the month designed to help our youth members build good financial and savings habits. Keep track of the different contests and resources on our website.
Two Park City members win $100 in savings contest
During these challenging times, it pays to have an emergency fund. For two Park City members, Adam C. and Kurt S., not only did their money stretch in a savings account, they were winners of the Saver’s Sweepstakes® statewide drawing.
These members are participants in special deposit accounts that pay them dividends while automatically entering them in monthly, quarterly and annual cash prize drawings. Each won $100 in the recent monthly drawing.
Members earn entries into the sweepstakes for every $25 saved each month. They can receive up to six entries monthly. These entries are applied to $100 monthly drawings, $1,000 quarterly drawings and a $5,000 yearly grand prize drawing.
Park City joins the Teddy Bear hunt
Families across the Northwoods are getting into the spirit of the teddy bear and heart hunt. A scavenger hunt suited for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, people are putting stuffed animals and hearts – from the tiniest to the massive – inside windows for people to find on walks or drives around area neighborhoods.
Residents aren’t the only ones participating in the movement. Park City has decorated its branches in Merrill, Rhinelander, Minocqua and Tomahawk with hearts and bears, too.

6 Reasons Your Money is Safe at Park City
Along with the mad dash to buy all the toilet paper stores can stock, some members have asked about the need to withdraw cash from the credit union. The fact is, the need for cash withdrawals during this crisis has no basis in fact. Unlike overextended banks that caused the Great Recession, the current financial crisis was caused by the reaction to the Coronavirus outbreak, not a systemic banking problem. There is a perception and rumors churning within social media that there could be an issue with the credit or debit systems, but there is no validity to that concern. Putting it under your pillow at home is not safe. It’s more prudent to take it as you need it.
Annual Meeting Postponed
Due to the uncertainty created by COVID-19, Park City is postponing its Annual Meeting scheduled for April 29. Many jurisdictions have been imposing restrictions on public gatherings, which make it impossible to hold the annual meeting as planned. A new date is to be determined with our members’ best interests and health in mind.
3 Ways to Keep Your Money Safe from Fraud
The Federal Trade Commission is taking extra measures to warn people of scammers that will use tactics to try and take your personal information.

Park City donates $25,000 to Hatchet Pride Project
Thanks to sponsors like Park City Credit Union, the privately funded Hatchet Pride Project surpassed $2 million in donations this month. As one of seven Platinum Sponsors, Park City presented a check for $25,000 to enhance the athletic facilities for the Tomahawk School District.
“Athletics teaches important life lessons such as teamwork, resilience, courage and hard work,” said Park City CEO Val Mindak. “This plan calls for some state-of-the-art improvements to the facilities in Tomahawk and we are proud to be a part of the Hatchet team.”
Anticipated facility enhancement includes adding synthetic turf to existing football field space, completing a new eight-lane track with nine sprint lanes, improving field event areas and making the bleachers and press box compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. This includes a new entryway, concession and pavilion area.
Jon Long from the Hatchet Pride Project said, “The support from local businesses and community organizations has been incredible.” The organization continues to raise tax-deductible donations at its website, HatchetPrideProject.com. Donations of $500 or more will be recognized on a donor wall.
Park City’s Sue Kunkel Awarded Highest Award in Rotary
The Merrill Rotarians awarded Loan Processor Sue Kunkel the Paul Harris Award. It is given to a Rotarian or a member of the community who has made an outstanding contribution to the community.
Kunkel is an active volunteer with the Merrill Chamber of Commerce, O’Tannenbaum Tour and 4H. She has served on the Merrill Transit Commission, the Lincoln County Fair Board of Directors, and has served as Chamber Ambassador since 1983. A former Merrill City Councilwoman, she served on the Health and Safety committee, the Parks and Rec Commission, the Historic Preservation Committee, the Housing Authority, the Board of Review and the Board of Public Works.
The Paul Harris recipient goes above and beyond in serving the local community through promoting change and understanding. Through the nomination, Kunkel is described as “very giving who volunteers for every activity possible in the city, and is a true champion of Merrill.”
Kunkel has been a long-serving employee of Park City Credit Union.
